For the last few years, Boulder Weekly has celebrated its anniversary by shining a light on the unsung heroes in our community. Over the years we’ve highlighted dozens of people working to make Boulder County a better place, and we’re grateful to highlight more do-gooders from every corner of the county this year. This is our way of saying thanks to the Boulder County community that supports us and makes this tiny section of the world an enjoyable place to live, work and play.
